James Turecamo 2

Since the first in this series was in 2009, let me go through my archives starting from the present.   I seem to have taken no photos of James so far in 2015, but here are two from 2014. Here are a few from 2013, the day the new Caddell Dry Dock came to town. I […]

James Turecamo

1969 . . . a year for me of many firsts,  like finishing high school and going off to college and  . . . .  In events related to this blog, 1969 was the year of feats and firsts accomplished by the likes of Apollo 11,  Suhaili, a 747, a Concorde, another Airplane, and ARPANET. […]

Retro Sixth Boro NYC Tugboat Races 5

Call this “thanks to Steve Munoz 20:  the 9th Annual North River Tugboat Race September 2, 2001.”   As Steve writes,  “The tug race on 9/2/2001 was  nine days before 9/11/2001. I was on board the tug Janet M McAllister for the race. My son was on board a Seabulk oil tanker docked in Bayonne […]

Eric McAllister assisted Cielo di Roma, now Baki Akar, Turkish-flagged out of her IMTT berth. Mako, in the dawnlight, which I see through an urban window these days, waits alongside her barge. Bow Riad meets Genesis Victory and sails west.  She was Huron Service until some point in 2013. I recall I got this photo […]

Retro Sixth Boro 23

Coastline Girls and many other names including Gage Paul Thornton and  ST-497, the 1944-build now sleeps deep in Davy Jones locker,  and was not an intentional reefing. It’s been a while since I last saw Mcallister Sisters, shown here passing the Esopus Meadows light.  If I’m not mistaken, she’s currently based in Baltimore. Ten years […]

Here’s a company I’ve not encountered before . . . LMZ. LMZ Europa was northbound at Stuyvesant as we passed, and following her were James Turecamo and Turecamo Girls, both   have been regulars down near the mouth of the Hudson, but these days the main ship assist horsepower up in this part of the […]

Retro Sixth Boro 10

In only ten years, a lot of changes have happened in the sixth boro.  I wish I’d started this blog 30 years ago to document even more, but 1988 predated blogs, the internet, and digital photography.  Wow . . . how did people relate back then? Joking aside, let’s see some that have moved on. […]

Other Peoples Photos 70

I’m still working to catch up and photos some of you have sent. First, from Scotland and Robin Denny, it’s Seal Carr (1983) and Oxcar, 1978 and looking almost like the USACE colors.  They’re working MV Saga Pearl 11 out of Firth of Forth, port of Edinburgh. From Port Newark and Tony A, it’s scrap . […]

This is day 3, the Rondout brought a surprising visitor in the form of Kalmar Nyckel.  When I’m back, I’ll do a whole post of this vessel. These photos are included chronologically, so you’d be correct to conclude that north of the Rondout there are signs of nature.   Foreign mariners especially must be surprised […]
